Reports Report 1457p (Event 1457-2017)

Name Natalie P
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I pulled in my driveway and as I got out of my car I saw a really big neon green ball of light in the sky. It seemed really close but made no sound. Didn't look like any pictures of fireballs or meteors I've ever seen before. It just appeared and then moved downward and to my right in an arc and disappeared behind the hillside within seconds. I stood there watching for a couple of minutes but nothing else happened.

Remarks The ball was bright neon green and it was 3 or 4 times bigger than the full moon. It also looked like it had green flames around the edge like you would see on a drawing of the sun. Don't know what that would be called It just appeared and then moved downward in an arc toward the right and had a bight green trail and then it all disappeared in a few seconds. There were a lot of clouds out as it has been raining.
